The recipe tip here comes from my six year old daughter and is a bit of a cheat. After buying an "M & Ms" cookbook at the Scholastic book fair recently, she has come to the conclusion that ALL recipes can be improved with M & Ms. And her three year old sister calls them "nummy nums" (think about it folks, or at least say it out loud and you'll see what I mean). So try baking your standard cake or cookie and adding a bunch of M & Ms on top and see if it doesn't improve on the original recipe.
